    new banners for all who likes

    Colleagues!

    I’d like to present you some banners made by me. I’m not a professional, but I like this kind of work. The first three banners, that I made several days ago when I had free time at work, were submitted by me in Anna’s (aka Vaurien) thread “May 9th is arriving”. She hinted me at making a new thread for banners. I couldn’t stop myself and have made some more banners.

    I strongly believe that all the enthusiasts of Russian watch collecting should have good interesting and attractive banners.

    Besides, I have every reason to consider that wearing Russian watches is something like declaration of independence. You have choice what to wear, but you choose Russian watches. And you’re wearing Russian watches not to impress someone or to look more respectable, but out of your inner need. I guess you see in them something that is close to you and feel behind them something important. They give you answers to your intuitive questions. This is a position of an independent person.

    I see that the Russian section of the Watchuseek forum is slightly different from the others. And it’s actually not about the watches you wear but about you and your state of mind. That`s the reason why I feel much among friends here.

    You can use any banner you like.
    I’d be proud if you find some of them interesting.
    Let them attract attention to your watches. Let people from other watch forums seeing your great watches and your banners ask you about them and search for more information in the internet.

    That is very impressive work, you obviously have a talent for graphical design! And thank you for donating your work for free use. I'm missing the Kirova owners club though...

    Fine work! Thank you very much!
    I feel expecially attracted by Gagarin's banners. He was such a fine boy!
    Russian watches were designed to be maintained in the field by an agricultural worker using nothing but a hammer, a sickle, and some tractor grease... (phd)

    Does this look like what you`re missing?
    It seems the Soviet Union is still alive at least in some things.

    How about a Volmax logo that incorporates the 3 brands in cyrillic? Just an idea. I was planning to make one when I had some spare time but you seem to be pretty good at it.

    Nice work Silversen! I know it is easy to work on a larger scale, but what looks good full-screen can look awful when shrunk to small size.

    You are also right in saying that those who like Russian watches are more confident, not feeling a need to conform to others' values. Otherwise everybody in the world would be wearing Rolex watches! I feel that on average we are a lot more aware of, and appreciative of the history, engineering, heritage, and generally the inner workings than average too.

    Thanks for doing this. It'll be the best if you can make this a sticky thread!
